Robert's quotes of Julian of Norwich
"God of your goodness give me yourself for you are enough for me."
"He did not say, 'You shall not be tempest-tossed, you shall not be work-weary, you shall not be discomforted'. But he said, 'You shall not be 'overcome.' God wants us to heed these words so that we shall always be strong in trust, both in sorrow and in joy."
"Flee to our Lord and we shall be comforted. Touch him and we shall be made clean. Cling to him and we shall be safe and sound from every kind of danger. For our courteous Lord wills that we should be as at home with him as heart may think or soul may desire."
"Prayer is the deliberate and persevering action of the soul. It is true and enduring and full of grace. Prayer fastens the soul to God making it one with his will through the deep inward working of the Holy Spirit. So he says this, 'Pray inwardly, even though you find no joy in it. For it does good, though you feel nothing, see nothing, yes, even though you think you cannot pray. For when you are dry and empty, sick and weak, your prayers please me, though there be little enough to please you, All believing prayer is precious in my sight."
"If we fall we are to get up quickly; for the worst pain a soul can have is to let sin take it away from God. The testing experience of falling will lead us to a deep and wonderful knowledge of the constancy of God's love, which neither can nor will be broken because of sin. To understand this is of great profit."
